We finally have an evening game and it promises to be a good one. We are playing the Texas Tech Red Raiders starting at 5:00pm this Saturday and we are 13.5 point favorites.
Like us, the Red Raiders have a prolific offense. They rank third in passing offense (376.8 yards per game), seventh in overall offense (528.3 ypg) and 10th in scoring (42.3 points per game). So here’s to hoping that Ruffin’s new simplified defensive strategies hold up well for us on Saturday. I suspect we are in for a offensive shootout again this weekend!
As it stands at this point in the season, we are number 7 in the CFP polls and need a lot of help to move up. Specifically we need Michigan to have some trouble down the line. If that happens we have a real shot at making the playoffs for the third time in four years.
In any event we will gather at the usual Nicoli’s for beer, food, camaraderie, and beer. Hope to see everyone there!
